Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

The mighty NEA Jazz Master Saxophonist Dave Liebman kicks off this week's episode of Neon Jazz, as we play tracks from legends he played with over the years, like Elvin Jones and the mighty Miles Davis. We also take a look at the new music from the great Jared Sims and hear words of wisdom from up and coming French-born, NYC-based saxophonist Stephane Spira.

We also profile Hannibal, Missouri-born, NYC-based jazz drummer Matt Kane and his newest solo project The Other Side of the Story. Neon Jazz pays deep respect to the latest jazz musician to leave us too soon, Roy Hargrove. We finish up the program with a new track from piano legend Harold Mabern and Miki, a young cat out of Serbia with an interesting mix of jazz sounds.
